Proper Care for Broccoli & Cabbage
Choose a sunny location for planting, ideally with fertile, well-drained soil enriched with compost or organic matter. Broccoli and cabbage thrive in cooler temperatures, making them well-suited for Ohio's climate. Plant the seedlings in early spring for a spring harvest or in late summer for a fall harvest, ensuring they are spaced about 18 to 24 inches apart to allow for ample growth and airflow.

Both broccoli and cabbage require consistent moisture to thrive, so water the seedlings regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Mulching around the base of the plants can help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Monitor for pests such as cabbage worms or aphids, which can be managed through early detection and organic control methods such as handpicking or applying insecticidal soap. Fertilize the plants with a balanced organic fertilizer every few weeks to promote healthy growth and abundant yields.
